Schott Spring Piano Series 2010

Last year I helped put together a series of concerts in the recital room in the basement of the Schott shop and publisher in London. They went pretty well so we have devised another. The pianists are mostly different ones from last year, and are all friends, some of whom are coming quite a long way to play. Quite a few of the performers are composers as well. I hope there’ll be a good audience.

All concerts start at 6.30pm.

Tickets are available on the door: £10, £7 concessions.
